Adults-only ‘Cirque Nocturne’ comes to Science Museum Oklahoma April 26
Science Museum Oklahoma guests can experience an after-hours circus complete with feats of danger and delight during the museum's “SMO 21: Cirque Nocturne” from 6:30 to 10 p.m. April 26.
The event will be an adults-only (21+) night at the museum, 2020 Remington Place, presented by Express Employment Professionals International.
“Cirque Nocturne” will be a circus unlike any other in that the guests are both the stars and the audience, a news release stated. Attendees can eat and dance with fire, try their hands at juggling both messy and dangerous things, throw knives, investigate the physics that makes walking on glass possible, test their legs on stilts, play carnival games, sit beneath the cotton candy nebulae in the newly updated Kirkpatrick Planetarium, watch as performers test the limits of gravity and much more.
“Whether you’ve been to the circus or not, most people have an idea of what the circus is — a place where the seemingly impossible and the impossibly dangerous can happen. We’ll be exploring the science and danger of the circus with a lot of fun that’s only for grownups,” said Clint Stone, vice president of programs for Science Museum Oklahoma.
Tickets are $21 in advance or $25 on the day of the event and are available online, in person during regular museum hours and by phone. Tickets include all activities and access to the museum. Guests are encouraged to buy tickets in advance, as admission is limited and the event is expected to sell out.
Those purchasing tickets at the door should check the museum website for updates regarding ticket availability and arrive no later than 7:30 p.m. There will be no ticket sales after 7:30 p.m. and no outside food or beverage is permitted.
Additional SMO 21 events — with themes to be announced — are set for Aug. 16 and Oct. 25.
